Blizzard

Original Text: 
Sour Grapes: A Book of Poems (Boston: The Four Seas Company, 1921). York University Library Special Collections 4748.
2years of anger following
3hours that float idly down --
4the blizzard
5drifts its weight
6deeper and deeper for three days
7or sixty years, eh? Then
8the sun! a clutter of
9yellow and blue flakes --
10Hairy looking trees stand out
11in long alleys
12over a wild solitude.
13The man turns and there --
14his solitary track stretched out
15upon the world.
